Maritime English & Standard Marine Communication Phrases (S.M.C.P.)

The project, realised by the “I.P.S.I.A.M.” of Molfetta, is addressed to deck and engine personnel (officers, ratings and auxiliary personnel on board), pilots and shore-based maritime personnel such as VTS (Vessel Traffic Service) staff. The project provides a sort of “survival kit” as they include all essential safety-related events where spoken English is required, both in conversations by radio and face-to-face ones onboard. It trains in the proper use of Maritime English and Standard Marine Communication Phrases. A fundamental tool in this project is the Dictionary of Maritime Terms English Italian-English”, while for practising and drills on SMCP, a number of multimedia products can be used. Finally, a fundamental tool to implement the project is provided by the new-generator Simulators which can turn drills into actual “full immersions” experiences.
